Life can be a real bitch and sometimes you just have to suck it up. You have to roll with the punches and move on. This song was written with one thing in mind, take life by the balls and give it everything you GOT!!


It was the first time that I realised life’s not what it seems it’s a vicious game of chase your tail and everything in between

I gave it all I gave it life I gave myself and I sacrificed I took the chances most would envy and I end up paying the price

If I could take my turn again I’d end up doing it all the same, I’d still end up in the gutter of self pity, pain and shame

There ain’t no way to save me now I’ve made my choice and I’ve made it proud I’ll keep the black dog off my back and I’ll keep him in his cage

And it’s not my time,

And it’s not my your life, your gunna share

Yeah it’s not my time,

I’ve made excuses that are fake, to break the promises I’ve made to myself and to my dreams I’ve tried to procreate

Just when you think the stars align, just when you think it is your time you have to take the ball and kick it right through your tortured mind

I’ve learnt to live with my mistakes, I’ve learnt to mend a heart that breaks and fight the never ending battle that rages everyday

If this war inside subsides and the demons they retire I’ll be a shell of a reflection in the mirror late at night

And it’s not my time,

And it’s not my life, your gunna share

It’s not my time for you to be with me

So stand with me and raise your voice, yeah take your chances make your choice, if there is one thing I have learned it’s don’t fake your way through life

There ain’t no change without revolt, there ain’t no questions you can’t solve, if you think it’s all too hard then why’d you break the mould.

There is a reason that your here, there is a reason we evolved, you need to take shit and stick it right in your mortal soul

Life’s not going to give you roses, life is going to give you pain and if you sit down in the gutter it’ll kick you till in your insane

And it’s not my time,

And it’s not my life, your gunna share

It’s not my time,

No it’s not my life,

It’s not my time for you to be with me….
